I Scream for Ice Cream (Maker)

Phil_A_Mignon | Jun 9, 2008 08:13 PM

So I'm throwing a fancy shmancy gourmet barbecue (no, that's not an oxymoron) for about 40 friends in July. At the end of the day, I'd like to hand out bowls of my homemade gelato to everyone. Problem is, the gelato should be served immediately, 3 days in the freezer at most (and compromising on quality at that). I figure I'll need 1-2 gallons for my guests. I have a one-quart cuisinart, but I need 24 hours in between each quart to freeze the damn freezer bowl part of the machine. You see my (time needed to make gelato) vs. (volume capability of my machine) predicament?? My question is, does anyone know of a company in my area (Chester County, PA ... I'm in Exton) that rents ice cream machines? If not, how likely do you think it is that a local ice cream shop will allow me, for a predetermined fee, to bring them my base and have them put it through their machines? Help.
